Lets look again at the film that started it all “Star Wars IV: A New Hope” – and reconsider the story in the light of films I-III. Keith Martin wrote the article, detailing his discoveries of hidden events and agendas that must’ve taken place in that first film (for narrative thread and logic to hold together) – but were left out for various (mostly clandestine) reasons.
Here is the link. Read the article and discover, for example that:
– Chewbacca is the ultimate undercover agent and a deep thinker.
– Han Solo is not all that daring and independent.
– Millennium Falcon is a hot custom job, “007”-like.
– Pretty much everything that happened on Tatooine was prearranged;
and most surprisingly, that R2D2 is “The Mastermind”, the Brain behind it all.
